Pakistan will be locking horns with New Zealand for a 5-match ODI series at Pakistan. After the 5-match T20I series which ended in a 2-2 stalemate, the duo will be locking horns in the 50-over segment.
Considering that the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will be taking place in India in the sub-continent conditions, New Zealand would be hoping to get acclimatized to the spin-friendly conditions.
In the final match of the T20I series, Mark Chapman went all guns blazing and struck his maiden T20I century. He scored an unbeaten knock of 104* runs in just 57 deliveries and scripted a stellar victory for the visitors.
Chapman also bagged the Player of the Series award for his consistent run in the T20I series. He scored 290 runs in 5 games and had a mind-boggling average of 290.00.
In the bowling front, Haris Rauf bagged 11 wickets and finished as the leading wicket-taker after this PAK vs NZ T20I series.
New Zealand has a young and spirited side as most of their senior pros like Kane Williamson, Tim Southee, and Devon Conway are playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023.
